This Special Edition of 360 bottles made from giant semi-wild, maguey Arroqueño is dedicated to Thor Heyerdahl, Biologist, Explorer and Great Human Being.
The magueys were roasted in a conical pit over hot rocks, buried with earth for three days, fermented with nothing but airborne microbes for thirty days, then twice -distilled very slowly in an ancient clay still with bamboo tubing the original, centuries-old Oaxacan, hand-crafted way.
Arroqueno has notes of luscious melon on the palate, like cantaloupe and a bit of baking chocolate in the background. It is very vegetal, reminiscent of fresh green beans, with savory medium to long finish. Due to limited production, this special edition mezcal is available only as one bottle per person, per order.
